Realme Philippines has taken the wraps off its new budget smartphone contender and the pricing is definitely promising. Coming off the heels of a very strong 2019 where the company grew tremendously – 808% year over year growth in Q3 2019 – the brand is now launching the Realme 5i, a sort of sibling to the Realme 5 with more affordable pricing.

For PHP 6,990, you get essentially the Realme 5 – same processor, same display, same cameras, same storage config, and same battery. The main difference between the Realme 5 and the 5i is that you get a small decrease in specs and accessories – the WiFi is Single Band 2.4Ghz (no 5Ghz but honestly its not that important), there is no silicone case in the package (about $2 / PHP 100), and the front camera is 8MP instead of 13. Oh and finally, the back has a matte texture instead of the glossy back (not really a disadvantage though) of the Realme 5.

Realme 5i – PHP 6,990 (Est. US$ 140)

  • Snapdragon 665 processor
  • 6.5″ 1600×720 IPS Display Gorilla Glass 3 (Mini-drop notch)
  • Quad Rear Camera Setup
    • 12MP f1.8 PDAF Main Camera
    • Up to 4K 30FPS video
    • EIS on video
    • 8MP f2.25 Ultrawide
    • 2MP f2.4 Macro
    • 2mp f2.4 Portrait (Monochrome)
  • 8MP Front Camera
  • Android 9 with ColorOS
  • 3GB RAM + 64GB ROM (MicroSD Expandable)
  • Triple Slot Dual SIM LTE (SIM + SIM + SD)
  • Rear Fingerprint Scanner
  • 3.5mm Headphone Jack
  • 5,000 mAh Battery
  • Comes in Aqua Blue & Forest Green
  • WiFi 2.4 Ghz, Bluetooth 5.0

What’s still the same are as we said what’s more important like the rear cameras, the display, the battery, and the processor. So its a more affordable version of the Realme 5 with very little sacrifices made.

If you’re interested in one, the Realme 5i will be available in Aqua Blue or Forest Green on Feb 1, 2020 for the aforementioned price of PHP 6,990 (Est. US$ 140). It’ll also be even cheaper online on Shopee flash sale on Jan 30th and Feb 1 every 12NN and 6PM. More discounts can be had by using “REALME12OFF” on the Realme Official Store to get 12% off, so be sure to check it out once it becomes available!
